Ocean Water Vertically Mixes As It Rushes Over Undersea Mountains
2013-09-19 07:58:02

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In the ocean near Antarctica, an international research team has solved the mystery of how deep and mid-depth ocean waters are mixed. The study, published in the journal Nature, reveals that sea water mixes dramatically as it rushes over undersea mountains in Drake Passage - the channel between the southern tip of South America and the Antarctic continent. This mixing of oceanic water layers is vital in the regulation of the Earth's...

Carbon Capture Monitoring With Cosmic Rays
2013-09-15 04:27:27

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from Durham University in the UK are looking towards the stars for a method to reduce costs associated with carbon capture and storage (CCS) – a process that could potentially mitigate contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming and ocean acidification. According to BBC News science reporter Simon Redfern, CCS involves capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from fuel as it is burned at a power station. That CO2...

Tiny Plankton May Have Big Impact On Climate
2013-09-13 14:28:37

European Geosciences Union As the climate changes and oceans' acidity increases, tiny plankton seem set to succeed. An international team of marine scientists has found that the smallest plankton groups thrive under elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) levels. This could cause an imbalance in the food web as well as decrease ocean CO2 uptake, an important regulator of global climate. The results of the study, conducted off the coast of Svalbard, Norway, in 2010, are now compiled in a special...

Receding Ice Exposes Seawater To Carbon Dioxide, Driving Ocean Acidification In The Arctic Ocean
2013-09-13 12:12:21

University of South Florida (USF Health) Acidification of the Arctic Ocean is occurring faster than projected according to new findings published in the journal PLoS One. The increase in rate is being blamed on rapidly melting sea ice, a process that may have important consequences for health of the Arctic ecosystem. Ocean acidification is the process by which pH levels of seawater decrease due to greater amounts of carbon dioxide being absorbed by the oceans from the atmosphere....

X Prize For Measuring Ocean Health
2013-09-10 11:15:29

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Global warming alarmists and deniers alike can probably agree on at least one thing: Scientists need the most accurate data and tools to make their climate assessments. In pursuit of more accurate climate data, the X Prize Foundation has announced a $2-million competition designed to kick-start technology innovations surrounding the accurate measuring of oceanic pH. Climatologists have been warning that the world's oceans are...

With almost 40 billion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) released each year from burning coal, gasoline, diesel and other fossil fuels in the United States alone, scientists are seeking ways to turn the tables on the No. 1 greenhouse gas and convert that troublesome CO2 back into fuel. Those efforts to unring one of the bells of global warming are the topic of a symposium here today at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific...

Aquascaping
2013-04-02 10:31:02

Aquascaping is the art of arranging aquatic plants along with rocks, cavework, stones, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium. Aquascape designs incorporate numerous distinctive styles. Usually, an aquascape houses fish as well as plants, although it’s possible to produce an aquascape with solely plants, or with rockwork or other hardscape and no plants. Even though the main goal of aquascaping is to construct an artful underwater landscape, the technical...

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...

Earth's Atmosphere
2004-10-19 04:45:44

Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...
